Larry Bowa will remain with the Philadelphia Phillies.
But his days as a coach are probably over.
The Phillies named Bowa a senior adviser to general manager Matt Klentak on Friday.
The Phillies are in the midst of hiring a new manager. They fired Pete Mackanin effective the end of the season. Mackanin also is now an assistant to Klentak. Bowa was Mackanin’s bench coach. The Phillies finished 66-96 last season.
Bowa, 71, has long been identified with the Phillies. The shortstop played for Philadelphia from 1970-81. He managed the team to a 337-308 record from 2001-04 and was a Phillies coach from 1989-1996 and from 2014-17.
